FC Football faces Jennings County tomorrow night


Tomorrow night, the varsity football team will be playing its final regular season home game against Jennings County. The game will be especially important for the seniors because it is Senior Night.

“It’s a big night because us seniors will be playing our last regular season home game,” said senior James Barlow. “Hopefully we’ll be back at home for sectionals.”

FC will be going into the game with a 5-1 record, with their only loss coming to the hands of Columbus East two weeks ago. Despite the loss, the Highlanders still feel confident they can make a run.

“Our coaching staff pushes us to the best we can be everyday,” senior Jason VanBuren.

Jennings County comes into the game with a record of 5-2. With the records similar, VanBuren thinks the game will be a challenge.

“They have a power running game, so they’ll match up well against us,” VanBuren said.

Both Barlow and VanBuren have remembered many memories while playing football for FC. Barlow said his favorite memory was playing New Albany twice during 2010 in which the Highlanders came from behind and won by one point in both games. VanBuren remembers when the team won the sectional title against Castle in 2009.

Tomorrow night’s game will begin 7 p.m. at FC.
